Some Interesting Facts about American and European Roulette

29 April 2013

Roulette is one of the most popular games amongst both Europeans and Americans, its origins being debated by many considering that several countries, even from other continents, like China, said that they have developed the first roulette game. The name ‘roulette’ is actually a diminutive from French, which means ‘little wheel’, the first one that developed the basis of the roulette game being Blaise Pascal, a mathematician from France, which tried to assemble a perpetual motion device rather than a game. Since the 17th century, when the game was invented, it has been upgraded until it appeared in Paris in the 18th century, when the final design of the wheel was established and is still commonly used in the US nowadays.
The main difference that the European roulette carries is that Francois Blanc and Louis Blanc decided to remove the 00 panel from the machine, this way cutting back the house edge to 2.63% from 5.26%, which gives the gamblers more chances than the American one.
When the French started playing in American gambling establishments, in New Orleans, the American roulette has also been developed and until today the system of both one zero and two zeros is used.
